SR-IOV and VLAN tagging were not supported for Emulex NICs prior version 11.5.1. The underlying NIC driver from Emulex lacked such support.


The impact of this issue is no SR-IOV and VLAN tagging support.


This issue occurs when VE running on host with Emulex NICs.


This issue has no workaround at this time.

Fix Information
